Since the 1980s, the modes of governance of public sectors have undergone substantial changes in most of the Western European countries.These public sector wide changes were in many cases inspired and driven by the principles of ‘New Public Management’ (NPM) that can be viewed as one of the global models of world society.This also applies to Polish and Ukrainian higher education, where reforms have taken place with the intention to transform their higher education systems in order to align them more with European higher education systems. Our study aims to address the void in empirical research about the policy making in higher education governance applying institutional analysis that is based both on historical and sociological institutionalism.
